(iWIDK By Paul Micele) – A convicted sex offender strikes again.
John Burbine, 49, of Woburn, MA has been charged with the sexual assault of 13 children, ranging from 8 days old to 3.5 years old, all of who attended his wife’s, Marian Burbine, unlicensed day care.
According to CBS News, Burbine was convicted of sexual assault and battery in 1989, and is a level one sex offender.
Prosecutors state that Burbine’s wife, Marian, was aware of her husband’s past but still allowed him to work at the day care.
“Among the offenses John Burbine faces are 40 counts of aggravated forcible rape of a child. His attorney, William Barabino, said Thursday that the defendant will plead not guilty at his Dec. 12 arraignment. A judge previously ordered the defendant held without bail.”
Marian Burbine has been released on bail but she will face charges of reckless child endangerment.
